Notes / Commercial Description:
Edward (1917-2002) is our grandfather; Hill Farmstead Brewery rests upon the land that was once home to him and his five children. In his honor, this American Pale Ale is dutifully crafted from American malted barley, a plethora of American hops, our ale yeast and water from Edward’s well. It is unfiltered, naturally carbonated, and dry hopped. Aromatic and flowery, with impressions of citrus and pine, this is the ale that I dream to have shared with Edward.

85 IBU

Pale and Caramel malt; Centennial, Chinook, Columbus, Simcoe, and Warrior hops; House Ale Yeast, and our Well Water.

Pour is hazed pale golden amber with a perfectly tight white head. Nose is huge hop, well balanced pale malt and grain bill with notes of weed and a strong citrus punch. Taste is a touch more balanced, very drinkable. Grain bill is more pronounced with a light pale malt. Hops are herbal ad citrusy, grassy notes linger with a very light bitterness, assertive carbonation and a light airy body.
Growler - nose is stronger citrus, orange and peach. Taste also has more hops, some citrus and some fresh fruity green notes, still well balanced grain, clean and fresh. Bitterness is a touch less than I remember.
